Kazkommertsbank is one of the largest corporate and retail banks in Central Asia and located in the anchor building of the Almaty Financial District. Views to the surrounding Tien Shan Mountain range are captured from two atria that together create a central “canyon” through the building. A six-story glass wall reveals the atrium to the city and fixes the building as a monumental presence on Al-Farabi Avenue.
